I did like this book as each page is a different woman so you didn't have to sit and read the entire book at once if you didn't want to. However, I don't honestly know if all the things that are said on the pages are 'true'... but it does give ideas to be able to do your own research about different women. Popular ones are in here along with ones that I had never heard of either. Nicely done

i have 3 girls and we loved this book! gorgeous illustrations, one page summaries on a good number of women, several of whom I had not heard of. i appreciated that women of color & native americans were represented. a great way to be introduced to amazing women of the old west.

How can today's girls possibly hope to measure up to these Wild Women when the heights and weights are given, but no bust measurements? It's outrageous. I mean, here you will find information about all these lovely ladies...

"Stagecoach Mary was six feet tall and built like a brick house: big-boned and muscular."
"Carry Nation... was six feet tall and weighed one hundred eighty pounds. That's BIG.
Esther Hobart McQuigg Slack Morris: "It didn't hurt that she stood six feet tall and weighed one hundred eighty pounds. She almost always got her way."

Please, Mr. Winter and Ms. Guevera, get over listing women's body sizes as some sort of nod to their importance.

This book overlooks the civilizing influence of women and instead showcases (and lauds) lawlessness and criminal activity. A few of the ladies are admired for their heroic actions, but most of them are portrayed as sideshow freaks.

Just sad.

A much better view of women in the Wild West comes from this book: "Explore! Wild West" Explore the Wild West!: With 25 Great Projects (Explore Your World series)

Great illustrations.
